“Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple,
that’s why it is so complicated.” ~ Paul Rand
Hi! I’M LINDA DARLENE I’m a freelance web designer and marketing consultant, currently residing with my husband in our empty nest in the East Valley area of Phoenix. I also call Chicago, Palma de Mallorca (Spain), Giosa Marea (Italy), Denver, Malibu, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Bozeman, MT. ‘my home.’ 🙂
I am passionate about decorating, ballroom and Latin dancing, dancer and choreographer Derek Hough, reading historical fiction or biographies (especially about our founding fathers), listening to classical music, sharing with friends at local ethnic restaurants, and practicing my Italian.
For personal gratification, I began working on websites in 2009. And after a lot of ‘baptism by fire’, I decided I better get some formal training. I enrolled in classes through the Lake Washington Institute of Technology in the Seattle area, took many online courses, and learned from some of my friends in the design field.
I call myself The Aesthetic 美 Web Designer because I love finding ways to design websites that are not just functional, but most importantly aesthetically pleasing. My motto is “practical and pretty.”
With a little over 10 years of experience, I specialize in designing websites, landing pages or blogs with style and aesthetics. It is my passion to attract more business for my clients by designing attractive ‘online calling-cards’ for small service businesses and non-profits.
On my HOME PAGE, I tell you more about my philosophy on three essential AESTHETIC ELEMENTS. I also talk about the seven most important DESIGN FEATURES that I think are important in website design. And at WHY CHOOSE ME, I speak a bit more about why my style of designing is for standing out from the crowd.
